Author commentary

Veronica: The soda that Paulo is drinking is a soda that the old series had, I felt kind of embarrassed but also nostalgic to be using it again. I WAS LIKE SEVEN SO I HAVE A GOOD EXCUSE FOR THE NAME TO BE MILDLY EMBARRASSING.

I never got to experience detention, it must have been an exhilirating experience.

We want to email you some comics!

Join the thousands of BCB fans who look forward to an email of cat drama every Monday morning, and we’ll send you a dozen “Ships Ahoy” comic strips, and one every week after that!

For some reason this yellow colour scheme is making everything so much more BAM-in-yo-face. It’s much more exciting! Haha.

You know, it’s weird, I can kinda sorta imagine Sue’s voice but nothing for Paulo. Or for all the guys for that matter.
I can imagine voices for the girls, though how it would sound, I don’t know if I can describe it… voices are a pain to describe, you just gotta… hear it to know.
But, oh yes, nice page, keep up the good work!

Finally some sanity. This goldenrodish color is both uplifting and somewhat serious (As it seems all of the deeper colors tend to be) Hmmm.

Also nice on giving a break from Lucy. =D

Comment ID #1956

well then, who else now REALLY sees some sort of mike/lucy awkwardness coming up. Because I sure do, though I expect that some other characters will be more involved this time.

On another not, the idea of an Iphone version of the site is a great one. Seeing as I read through a lot of the archive on an Iphone, and also seeing that doing so was a PAIN IN THE ***, I think that this was the perfect idea.

what the…where did Daisy come from? Did she take Abbey’s seat or was she hiding behind the speech bubble?…like a dialogue ninja…do they have those 9w9…well anyways I know this is my first time posting here and I just came across this comic by chance about last week, but something about it just lored me in. Even though I’m not a big fan of school drama such as bloody Highschool Musical, I find myself intrigued on how I’m getting drawn into the story. At least there isn’t like singing at a pep rall…(reads “A Different Side” pg8&9) >=[…I think what is so appealing to me is how the artwork and the story completely throws you off gaurd. It’s like coming across a butterfly in a city; while you are distracted by it’s beauty and innocence, you don’t see the plot sneaking up behind you getting ready to hit you across the face with a big red herring just for it’s own amusement. Well that’s all I gotta say at the time being, keep up good work. Now to ponder more on these dialogue ninjas.

Why is paulo such a derp most of the time?
(What if the play is something epic like hamlet or something, then he’d be jealous)

Nomadic Scholar March 24, 2010, 4:43 AM EST.

well, I would certainly hope that Sue didnt use that much paper because she wanted to re-write Hamlet.

Well maaaaybe Paulo is one of those people who have FUN in detention?
Maybe the teacher ish lazy o.o
or maybe some teacher he has the hots for.
wouldn’t surprise me… haha…
NOW if Tess WAS in detention, i WOULD be surprised.

hmm lack of Lucy and David o.o
where they beeee? -probably other side of the table-

aaand the play… better not end up Sue trying to do something funny with the roles Mike has with Lucy if she is EVEN in the play at all.

aaand Same as what Swm said… Daisy came outta nowhere, but then again, she usually does that… sort of.

….i just noticed like FIVE CANS in front of Paulo. Sheesh, I thought he was supposed to be poor! xD
Bad Paulo! Too much soda ish bad for you D:

Kudos for your work on the RSS feed!

If you want another challenge, what about using AJAX to fetch the hidden comments on demand, besides simply hiding them with CSS? (I’d assign that a low priority though.)

Hey taeshi(is that your real name or just a user name?),

When are you gonna finish the shop? you should totally get a cap or a beenie with yashy on it or other characters… or something

Oh and for a freebie I will tell you something i would get. I would get a shirt of that turtle triping somebody on it. that would be epic.

Souppy, there’s currently no practical reason, it’s just something to think about when you’re bored and wanna be a nerd. It’s mostly a stab at your “bad coder” remark. Really, you’re doing a great job on the site.

@ all the porn seekers: The porn is real! You just have to look for it.

Jasper March 24, 2010, 9:39 AM EST.

Comment ID #1987

Personally, I think AJAX is hard to justify for things like that. It’s more likely you’ll **** someone off with a flaky internet connection (i.e. someone whose internet dropped out after the page loaded) or that you’ll deny access to someone without Javascript. In fact, if you look closely, the code I used to show and hide sections very specifically ensures that non-Javascript people never even know there was an option to hide things..

Now, to fix the awful slashes appearing in usernames and to make a vague attempt at adding comment support to the iPhone version.

Detention was alright here and there, Mattered more on who else was in detention WITH you.

I image it was hella boring to have detention all day (“Day School” at my school) with boring/lame people but I always got lucky and got cool people in it when they dragged me out my sched class’s to make up for all the detentions I missed after school :]

The only sensible choice to rape is the 22 year old, but you’d think this school would at least give an in-school suspension. (then again, he could still be in her classroom during the time ;P)

I don’t think Sue’s going to try and bring Mike and Lucy together with her play. She was the most supportive of Lucy trying to get along without him from what I can remember. In any case, I don’t think she’d pull a stunt like that unless she was absolutely certain it wouldn’t go wrong.

Well, I just thought you wouldn’t approve because most authors of webcomics I read generally either notify readers of their dissaproval of pornography based on their webcomic or the webcomic is directed to too young an audience.

Yeah, but then there’s always the felony of possesing child pornography. And before you ask, yes, anthro creatures and manga involving characters that qualify as “underaged” by the court system is grounds for being arrested. This happened to some guy in Iowa. It was actually in the news.

That was just an example that shows the cops will actually arrest you for those. If you read the article, you’ll realize that he wasn’t flaunting the mangas, he was just a collector and the police found out through the postal system.

And if you think they won’t catch you, if you put the image up on the internet, the government pays people to sit online and find this stuff. They will find you.

C / SN Knouse March 24, 2010, 11:50 PM EST.

Comment ID #2051

I wonder about that. I think she’s probably okay because they’re anthropomorphic characters—not likely an attractive target for an overactive police taskforce, even if it is technically illegal. However, child porn hysteria knows few limits at the moment. The fact I’ve simply been to 4chan and anontalk recently and have information from those sites in my cache means I’ve probably broken some Australian laws about possessing some form of child porn, and no doubt similar laws apply in America.

If a government agency is interested in prosecuting you for child porn, they can almost always find reasons to do so. So I think it’s not worth living in fear, just act as you would and hope that you’re never subject to an investigation, and hope that one day reason will prevail (I refer to people like the guy above with some lolicon manga, or people with pictures of themselves and partners when under 18, or people who draw porn, however “realistic”.)

So overall I don’t think it’s worth worrying about, unless you’re a crazy libertarian with a point to prove.

That loophole might help, too—typically, these cases have been decided around the idea of simulating real child porn. I don’t think there’s a clear enough resemblance to children\teens to cause enough of an issue to trigger the interest of some government agency.

I can believe his mother was a bowl of noodles. His being the greatest instant ramen chef in the world is only a testament to her noodley goodness.

Detention was always awkward. Also, am I correct in assuming this is before the whole Lucy confessional? ‘Cause I remember Paulo going HEY MAN WHY YOU A *** because Mikey was helping in the play.

I don’t like Drama, but I love Musical Theater. Singing is my forte, so yeah. If there’s singing in Sue’s play, then Paulo should be cool with it.
